If you are regularly attending New Covenant, are actively involved in an Adult Bible Fellowship, small group or ministry team, or are a regular part of the high school youth group, we encourage you to consider church membership. If you desire to make a commitment to participate in the work God is doing in and through New Covenant, please join us for the next Membership Weekend.
What does it mean to be a member of New Covenant Bible Church?
Membership is for those who identify with and desire to participate in the work that God is doing in and through New Covenant. We ask members to make three commitments. These membership commitments are critical to your growth as a follower or disciple of Jesus Christ:
- Commitment to Christ
- Commitment to His Community
- Commitment to His Cause
Christ – Grace Received
Through Christ we have received grace. This membership commitment involves putting my full trust in Jesus Christ as my Savior and spending daily time with God, seeking to become more like Jesus.
His Community – Grace Experienced
As we trust God and others with who we really are, we experience grace. This membership commitment involves getting involved in community (a small group or Adult Bible Fellowship), and contributing to my church family through serving faithfully and giving generously.
His Cause – Grace Extended
As we reach out to others we learn to extend grace. This membership commitment involves joining Jesus on mission through prayer, care and share, seeking to extend the kingdom of God both locally and globally.
Membership in a local church is a privilege and a responsibility. We cover what membership means at New Covenant in a weekend seminar format (offered 3-4 times a year). Our next Membership Weekend is March 23-24, 2018.
- Friday: 6:30 – 8:30 PM
- Saturday 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM
- Sunday 11:00 AM Interviews
On Friday and Saturday, we will cover such things as the history of New Covenant, mission and purpose, philosophy of ministry, vision, leadership, and statement of faith. After attending these two sessions, those who wish to apply for membership can fill out a membership application. Elders will be available on Sunday to meet with those who want to submit their membership applications.
Please contact Brenda in the church office (395-0021) if you have further questions, or are interested in attending.
